Just because your wedding dress is white doesn’t mean that it has to be bland and boring. In fact, having a simple white wedding dress can be a great idea for brides that want to celebrate their accessories and draw attention to things like their hairstyles or shoes. Want to make your wedding day ensemble pop? Try out one of these 5 ways to accessorize your wedding dress:
Go Beyond the Veil
A rising trend amongst stylish brides is to let their imaginations – and their hairstyles- go wild. Give your dress a chance to accent your hair by choosing intricate or interesting hair pieces that go beyond the traditional veil. Flowers, feathers, vintage hats, and other handmade creations can be a great way to add flair to your wedding look.
Punchy Colored Shoes
Brightly colored shoes in shades of aqua, fuschia, red, lime, or violet are making a splash on runways and on aisles around the world. Adding a pair of funky shoes to your wedding ensemble can be a great way to express your personality while adding dimension to your overall look. Plus it gives you a chance to break out those fabulous embellished heels you’ve been saving for a perfect day.
Large, structured pieces or colorful collections of jewels can add color and style to your overall look, especially if you’re choosing a simple dress that is sleek, slim, or short. Just be sure that you choose something formal enough for your occasion.
Belts, Sashes, and Ribbons – Oh, My!
Adding on a colorful belt, ribbon, or sash to your gown can be a great way to pump up the attitude on your overall look. Play with different colors, textures, or even metals to get the look that you’ve always wanted.
More than Just a Jacket
Great for winter and autumn brides, adding on a little jacket, cape, or bolero can be a great way to make your wedding dress pop. Choose from a variety of fur, lace, satin, silk, or embellished designs to find one that suits you and your wedding theme.
